If you are expecting the gentle pitter-patter of tiny feet, you may be wondering how to strike that difficult balance between staying comfortable and on-trend at the same time.
No fear – we have all the handy maternity fashion tips you need to get you through the next nine months in style!
Whether you’re taking a trip to see the midwife or going for an evening with the girls, you deserve to look fabulous.
That’s why here at Peacocks we’ve handpicked a few of our fave maternity outfit ideas just for you.
How to Stay Cool and Look Fabulous in the Summer Months
In the unpredictable British summer months, it’s hard to tell whether you’ll need to dress for a heatwave or a cold snap! But if you’ve got a holiday planned, it’s a good idea to have some maternity summer wear to keep you feeling refreshed and cool.
Become best friends with cotton! It’s breathable and offers plenty of airflow in the summer sunshine. Make sure your wardrobe is packed with essential cotton basics to tide you over, as well as your must-have fashion pieces.
Our Maternity Fashion Tips to Keep You Stylish
1. Stay true to your style
No matter how fast your baby bump is expanding, trendy maternity clothes mean you don’t have to compromise on your personal style. If you prefer wearing skinny jeans and a tee rather than a flowy dress, go for it!
2. Buy a selection of basics
Try looking for a range of essential stretchy tops in different styles and colours. These are easy to pair with anything, whether you decide to go for a casual-chic look with jeans and trainers or full-on elegance with a floral skirt and kitten heels. Of course, you should definitely check with your doctor before reaching for your heels – even if they’re only an inch high!
3. Try fitted pieces to show off that bump
Who says that you should mask your precious bump? Not us! Try buying some fitted garments to enhance your stunning shape and show your pride and joy off to the world! Just make sure the clothes aren’t too tight. Comfort is always key!
4. Jeans don’t have to be your fashion nemesis!
Ordinary skinny jeans can often be restrictive and ill-fitting, but maternity jeans are the perfect wardrobe essential! Try over and under-the-bump jeans to see which style you prefer and we guarantee you’ll never want to take them off. Find the perfect pair with stretchy denim and a soft bump band for added support as you grow.
